There’s a window of opportunity during every actor’s career that may rely on a good or bad
decision that can make them famous or ruin their reputation forever. In this episode, Hollywood “teen queen” Lindsay Lawson is seeking to break away from her old bubblegum image.


A provocative shoot with Richard Hemmings — an edgy New York photographer — might do just the trick. But she and her devious agent have also hatched a secret plan to ensure success, no matter the cost to anyone around them.
